“Confession: I spend 60% of my time with my supposedly well-informed ultra-progressive hipster friends kinda hating every word that comes out of their mouth. They have such strong opinions about things they actually know nothing about and it’s 80% speculation. I often wonder if others feel the same way about their friends or if I need new ones. Maybe the guy at the record store wasn’t mansplaining the new Band of Horses to you, maybe his boss forces him to be friendly (customer service! Tell the customers fun facts!), maybe Trudeau went to Pride because he is a good man, not because he’s abusing LGBTQ allyship etiquette to advance his PR image.” – Lady in Red (Face)
